Weekendesk has stayed attached to its core mission since the beginning in 2008: offering exciting experiences to people looking to go away on a short break.
At Weekendesk, we believe life is what you do with your time here: browse our website and let us help you find the perfect activity to share with your friends and family.
Our business is to bring fun, pleasure and relaxation to our clients: our young and energetic team of more than 150 employees from 15 nationalities is working hard to make it happen in our Paris and Barcelona offices.
Our design team is composed of two product designers, a graphic designer and their lead.
We are involved in many subjects of the company, in a relationship with most of the services.
Our current two main scopes are to work on a marketing campaign and brand identity plus the product with consistency between those 2 scopes (Our design System help us to do that).
Our goal is to spread the message to our prospect, solve user problems and fit user needs to provide the best user experience.
We have a perfect environment to test and try things to learn.
